You probably you have messed up with part numbers.
507284-001 - is the spare part number - used when buying parts thru sercice channel
507127-b21 - is the (option) part number - used when buying parts thru normal sell channel

They are disks with the same part number - so if the first one are supported, also the second one will be.

Where? On the disk itself?

All HP parts have on their labels two numbers. One is PN (part number) and the other is SPN (spare part number).

507127-b21 is Part number and it is listed in HP products quickspecs
SAS Hot Plug SFF Enterprise (ENT) Drives      
HP 300GB 6G SAS 10K SFF DP ENT HDD      507127-B21
From: http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12477_na/12477_na.html
In quickspecs you will never find listed SPN.

If you enter in HP Parts Surfer SPN, you will get direct result:
http://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?SearchText=507284-001

But if you enter PN 507127-B21, you will be "redirected" to SPN 507284-001:
http://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?SearchText=507127-B21

Or if you look there - both numbers are listed for the same product:
http://www.globalonetechnology.com/HP_300GB_6G_SAS_10K_2_5_SFF_Dual_Port_Hard_Drive_p/507284-001_new.htm

Spare part number with code 507127-B21 does not exist at HP.

And don't be surprised if you order two disks with the same part number and you will get one let say manufactured by Seagate and other by Hitachi. Under the same (S)PN can be listed more products, but all are compatible with let say server.
When looking for parts compatible with your server it is always good to use servers PN, as there are 7 generations of DL 380 servers with hundreds of different models (PN).

No, the disks will not give you any troubles with your server.

HP Spare part number 507127-b21 does NOT exist.
If you are getting to get HDD with part number 507127-b21 (this is not SPARE part number), then you will be fine, as this HDD has 507284-001 Spare part number. The one you are looking for and it is the same product you already have.

I wish I had here some HP HDD to take a picture and send you.
Spare part number is normally listed also on the front of HDD at the lever - where is also written size, type,... There you have SPARE: 507284-001
But if you pull out disk you will see on white label on the top of the drive HP P/N: ...
And I'm 100% sure that there you will see HP P/N: 507127-B21.

Also I'm sure that your reseller have no idea what is selling and don't understands the difference of HP PN and SPN. ;)
And this is now the main problem.

Your link is out of date, doesn't list the G7 servers. Look in the quickspecs - http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/13595_na/13595_na.html

I really think you should have accepted davorin's answer since he explained about there being a different part number for spares vs sales.
